Our girl Peppa arrived on Sunday and can I just say - WOW! Peppa is the sweetest, most mellow, lowest-of-low maintenance dogs that I have ever met! Most times, you don't even know that she is here! Of course, she was pretty scared upon arrival but her whole world had been turned upside down and she was very unsure about what was happening. She is slowly coming out of her shell and starting to feel more comfortable here. She was instant friends with my boy Tyson and looks to him for assurance that everything is going to be okay.
Peppa had a close call several years ago, where she very narrowly escaped being hit by a car. She is now pretty afraid of any moving vehicle and for good reason. Our home is on a very busy road and has no private yard, so we are working with her on desensitizing her fears. The best possible forever home for this beautiful girl would be a home on a quiet street with a yard that she could call her own. Although she fears walking past or being near a moving vehicle, she has no issues with getting into my car or riding in a car.
Peppa has a wonderfully sweet personality and simply wants to know where she fits in. She is very eager to please and thrives on the praise she receives when she's been a good girl. We've had some potty issues with her but these are very rapidly working themselves out as she gets comfortable with her new environment. I believe that she is fully house trained and that the accidents she had the first few days were due to her extreme nervousness.
This girl is a real keeper and no doubt will be scooped up fast! Stay tuned for more updates on the best girl ever!
